In line with the National Curriculum 2014, we provide all pupils with ‘an introduction to the essential knowledge they need to be educated citizens. In line with this document, we introduce children to the best that has been thought and said and we help engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement’. (National Curriculum for England 2014 ref 3.1.)
Excellent teaching gives children the life chances they deserve... Enjoyment is the birth right of every child. But the most powerful mix is the one that brings the two together. Children learn better when they are excited and engaged - but what excites and engages them best is truly excellent teaching.’
Excellence and Enjoyment: a strategy for primary schools
Ref: 0377/2003

  • for all pupils to receive a full education (UN Article 29) which is both exciting and engaging;
  • for all pupils to receive excellent teaching and be given the opportunity to learn in ways that maximise their success;
  • for all children to be set appropriate learning challenges;
  • to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development; and
  • prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life needed for life in modern Britain
